The Mind's Ear Program #37: "Regret This Very Day, Volume V"
On November 18th, 1978 (40 years ago today), 918 people perished in
what has come to be known as "The Jonestown Massacre". "Regret This Very Day: Volume V" documents the tragic end of The Peoples Temple. When events are recorded, they are preserved for
posterity much like fossils in a museum. In listening to recordings
from the past, we can relive the events
they captured in a spectral way--as a set of invisible ghost ears that
can observe the events as they unfolded, but not alter them in any way.
In Guyana, Jim Jones had a hand-painted sign hung above his rostrum
which read: "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat
it". This program was produced in remembrance of the past.
Tune in to The Mind's Ear every Saturday night at 9 p.m. (PST) and every Sunday night at 7 p.m. (PST) on Free Radio Santa Cruz (101.3 FM).
